Evidence of Acupuncture treatment for anxiety

According to the findings, the volume of literature, consistency of statistically significant results, wide range of conditions treated, and use of animal test subjects suggested very real, positive outcomes using a treatment method preferred by a population of individuals who tend to be resistant to conventional medicine.
